Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute To The Doors
(Purple Pyramid / Cleopatra Records)


Despite being a mostly late 1960’s musical phenomenon, the legacy of The Doors will never die. Although they stopped making recordings in the early ‘70snotwithstanding a pair of overlooked post-Jim Morrison albums, Full Circle and Other Voicesit’s the band’s core 6 albums from 1967-1971 that remains the centerpiece of their legacy. In 2014, music producer Billy Sherwood constructed an excellent Doors’ tribute album entitled Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute To The Doors for Cleopatra's Purple Pyramid imprint. Through the magic of recording and mixing tracks over the internet, musicians living all over the world can be seamlessly blended into any track and Billy has some big names to lend support here, most notably Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman of YES who appear on a cover of the most influential Doors track “Light My Fire”, with vocals by Ian Gillan. Featuring some of the biggest names in music history, Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute To The Doors reads like a who’s who in prog and pop—from Todd Rundgren and David Johansnen to Larry Coryell and Steve Cropper—from Mark Farner and Leslie West to Thijs van Leer and Keith Emerson. And that’s just the tip of the musical iceberg as you will see when you check out the CD booklet filled with all the track by track discography information. Hearing Edgar Winter singing “The Crystal Ship”—backed by guitar great Chris Spedding and drummer Scott Connoris just one of the many sonic revelations here. The musical genius who brought YES back to life with phenomenal results in the late 1990’s, Billy Sherwood rarely misses a beat as producer / musical contributor on this 16 track tribute album that lights a new fire into the legacy of The Doors.
